Thursday is getting a “This and That” treatment today. Just a lot of things happening and no time to talk and verify new jobs landed, like the two at Q13 (FOX in Seattle…that info is for tomorrow). So here’s a few items, a job and something for your heart…
Have you ever heard “the gates are wide open”? In an Irish household, the phrase was used when more than one person passed away in a short amount of time. At the moment, the gates are w-i-d-e open and St. Peter must have gone high tech to process all the souls. Nexstar in Rochester’s ED CRONY has the greatest family. Send them your best thoughts and comfort…his two daughters and his lovely wife have lost their grandmother and mother. Well Dunne! Talent’s JOEY V’s father passed away earlier in the week on the west coast. And TIM SANDERS of WTWO lost his grandmother Wednesday.
Former Promo Pro MARTY SCHLESINGER, who now is the bicycle king of San Antonio (my title, not his…he’s too cool for that moniker) is on the mend from a health scare. But all is well and his sense of humor is totally mended.
Holy cow…a newly placed head of marketing – one with no TV experience – actually asked her staff what a Topical was. Yep, that sure did happen. OMG. I’ll never tell where.
This weekend, AMANDA FORD of WPTV in Palm Beach is getting married…as is former promo pro LAUREL PORTIE (The List, KTVT) who ‘s tying the knot in Malibu. Happiness.

Down on the bayou…anybody else love that Creedence song? Well, on the real bayou, Baton Rouge, Louisiana, comes word that TRAVIS DENT is the new Promotion Manager for Fox/NBC duop WGMB and WVLA respectively. Travis calls Lincolnton, GA home (it’s Augusta GA adjacent, and all you golfers know that location immediately). He’s making the transition from Shreveport, where he worked for station owner ComCorp. Enjoy crawdad season, Travis! Well Dunne!
